Cyclo® Overhead Drive

The Sumitomo Cyclo Overhead Conveyor Drive is unsurpassed by any other inline drive available in the market today.

The Cyclo Overhead Conveyor Drive is an excellent choice for the food industry, but can also be used for more general applications such as automotive, tire manufacturing, and warehousing conveyor systems. Additionally, the Sumitomo Cyclo Overhead Conveyor Drive is drop-in ready for DVX and European standard footprints in both inline and right-angle configurations.

The inline, vertical drive utilizes Cyclo's unique epicycloidal design and has advantages superior to speed reducers using common involute tooth gears. The Cyclo components operate in compression, not in shear. Unlike gear teeth with limited contact points, a Cyclo has two-thirds of its reduction components in contact at all times. This design enables Cyclo speed reducers and gearmotors to withstand shock loads exceeding 500% of their ratings, and provide exceptional performance, reliability and long life in the most severe applications.
